1990 Rover Mini Cooper RSP S Pack in red with a white roof, bonnet stripes and mirrors. The RSP (Rover Special Product) was made by John Cooper to reintroduce the mini Cooper back into production. From 1971 – 1990 the mini Cooper was not made and the only available cars were 998cc minis. John Cooper fitted a Metro 1275cc engine and added some Cooper touches like bonnet stripes, white roof, and Minilite alloy wheels and 1050 were produced for the UK market. Due to the success of this car the mini Cooper then sold for an additional 10 years until the new BMW mini was made. John Cooper also gave the option of the S Pack which made the RSP into a Cooper S with an improved Cooper cylinder head (blue), exhaust manifold / exhaust and twin 1.25 SU carburettors. This conversion made the RSP very exciting but was an expensive option so only a few where ever made. He also offered a Handling Pack which consisted of wider 165 performance tyres, 5 mm wheel spacers and sports shock absorbers which is also fitted to this car. In addition to most RSP S Packs it also has twin fuel tanks and a rear anti roll bar both fitted by John Cooper Garages with an invoice for all the work in the very comprehensive history file. I also have the original conversion certificate signed by John Cooper still in its John Cooper Garages black wallet. The history file also has the original book pack, both sets of keys, extensive John Cooper Garages invoices for conversion work and servicing and every past MOT to support the mileage of 46400 miles in the last 34 years. It was bought on under 200 miles by its first owner who enjoyed it with his wife (also as an owner) for the first 28 years. It is rare to still see the factory RSP bonnet stripes and factory orange peal effect painted RSP wheel arches as well as original panels. It has recently had a very detailed and costly refresh. The last owner took the Mini to Ross at Thomas Modern And Classic Mini specialists. They were instructed to make the car mechanically as good as new which they have. It has had all of the suspension, steering, brakes, engine and gearbox rebuilt and it now feels very tight and precise to drive as it would have when new. The work has increased the power from the normal S Pack 78 bhp to 87.5 bhp. They also refurbished the wheel arch areas which all now look lovely. It is important to remember that the pictures are still showing the original 34 year old panels which goes to show how well this mini has been cared for. The cost of the refurbishment was just over £14000 which is all detailed in the history file. This really is a very rare and special opportunity to own a piece of mini Cooper history and should give its new owner an exciting and very enjoyable driving experience and long term investment.
